20cm storm total + all lifts open!

04 August 2021

With consistent snowfalls this season and amazing work from our mountain operations team, we’re excited to have all lifts spinning and the entire mountain open at Hotham! We’ve had 20cm of cold, dry snow in the last 48 hours and conditions are perfect. The north-westerly has blown the snow into the gullies and bowls of Heavenly Valley and the Gotcha Extreme Zone, making for reeling powder sprays with every turn this morning.

With the snow base currently at 139cm and freshies on offer, Hotham is living up to its reputation as being Australia’s ‘powder capital’. With more snow on horizon, the 1.5m base mark is well and truly in sight.

Those of you who have a soft spot (pun intended) for the backcountry know the best spots are not always marked on the map. So, checkout our Backcountry Guided Tours! From introductory to private tours, there’s something for everyone under the safety of our expert, fully qualified Hotham backcountry guides.  Find those secret spots in the Hotham backcountry you’ve been dreaming about.

Don’t forget, Heavenly Valley First Tracks is now open! Be amongst the first in Australia to hit the slopes with First Tracks at Hotham from 7:30am every Wednesday to Sunday for Epic Australia Pass holders. Set your alarm early and drop-in to some of the best lifted terrain in the country!

Planning to visit Hotham? Make sure to book your lift and lessons online well in advance to avoid disappointment as peak season dates may sell out. Don’t forget to buy at least 7 days ahead and build your bundle of lift tickets, lessons & rentals for the deepest discounts.
